This year’s theme is “Chaos, Creativity and Connections in Social Science Research” and abstracts – or proposals – are invited from doctoral researchers across the social sciences on their work-in-progress – particularly from those working in areas related to education and/or social work. Researchers can be at any stage of their doctoral studies and papers (or posters) can be methodological or conceptual. They can also be linked to the research process itself, or a discussion of findings. Proposals can speak to, but are not limited by, sub-themes such as:

    • Productive chaos in the doctoral research process
    • Creativity in research writing and/or process
    • Creativity in theory and/or practice
